Pro Comp X Terrarins?

Hey im wondering how these tires are and what they are good in specifically. My truck is on the street more than 90% of the time and want to know if they work ok on the street? Some reviews ive read on them said they slide around a lot if its at all wet out? They look really cool, not worried about size issues right now just need some thoughts on the tire itself. Who's running em? http://www.procomptires.com/xterrain2close.html

I had them and they had no grip on the street during the rain, not as much during the day either on the street. I could do burnouts with them, now with the BFG AT's I can't.

For DD I would pass.

there good tires
there radials so they last a decent amount of miles.

when its wet, my tires spin like crazy, its cause there is like no weight in the back, all trucks do that.

The only problem with selecting an "offroad" tire for a street tire.. is the tread contact patch. If your looking for traction on the road, your looking in the wrong area sadly.. mud tires have about a 50% contact patch compared to a standard street radial, which has much much much more compared to that.. I would like to say upwards of 85-90% tread patch.


If you still feel like trying to ifind some sort of aggressive tread for street wear, find somethign that has good siping on it.. or take those tires, and get them siped.. it will reduce the tires life by a small amount, but you will notice the traction difference.
